Dream Control

Dream Control

A Poem by Black_Oxygen



If you are anything, you’re the woman of my dreams

  Deeply and perfectly are two words that quantify

 I am unsure of all the standards that one has to meet

  My symptoms all suggest that you totally qualify


  Day dreams and night dreams are all being filled

By your images and sounds that appear every place

  I hear your melody out of every woman’s mouth

 And I’m even seeing men who are wearing your face


 I turn around a lot because I have driven past an exit

 Each passing day will present more of the same

 On the telephone, I catch myself dialing your number

 And apologizing for calling others by your name


   Your dream control earns you an achievement grade of ‘A’ plus

  The dreams!  Women look like you and the children look like us


 My Heaven on Earth is with you and all of your endless ecstasies

When you are not in sight, the only relief is dreams and fantasies


 Please understand, this does not mean I object

 Apart from you, I survive with a hunger that is unfed

 It keeps you in the place where I want you to be

 The most valuable position and foremost in my head


  You give comforts and delight even when I’m asleep

 Continue your manipulation however you deem

   I will just close my eyes, then surrender and receive

 Savor all the joys, and let you control the dream
